advertisements. it seems national. it's been a lot about the ryan budget and medicare. has that been the case in your campaign as well? have the big budget issues and economic issues particularly dominated or as we've been talking about today, have things like birth control, marriage equality been a big part of the conversation as well? >> you know, the majority of this campaign has really focused in on jobs and the economy, the difference between our tax plans, the difference between our deficit reduction plans. certainly a lot about health care and medicare especially given the fact that my opponent is a former bush cabinet secretary where we have a real record to contrast with regard to health care and medicare. and in each of those questions there's also been a local element to it. what have i been doing throughout my public service career and not so much what tommy thompson did as governor, but what has he been doing joining the bush administration and joining a large lobbying firm. i think that's where people are looking at this old expression, you work hard, play by the rules, you
